Cozy, wide swinging dress with long sleeves and optional hood.
A comfy and loose fitting girl's dress, a perfect basic pattern for all seasons.
Make it with stretchy fabric like french terry or Nicky (= winter dress), knit terry cloth (= cover up or beach dress) or jersey knit fabric (summer dress, nightgown)
The Cozy Dress is a quick sew - as easy as a T-shirt or sweatshirt. The dress has no closures, and the front part is divided by a yoke.
Below the yoke the dress gets pretty wide, so it will swing and twirl nicely, and even heavier kids will have enough space for their tummies.
please note: My patterns don't include the seam allowance, it needs to be added when cutting out the pieces. All measurements are in centimeters / meters (you can find a small printable ruler in the ebook.)
